  1. I’d be eager to hear from others what your favorite brads of hog brushes are.
    In my expeience best seem to be, Robert Simmons Signet series, Grumbacher’s Degas, Blick, Da Vanci (very overpriced though) and Utrecht (amazingly cheap for the quality $4 for a #6!)

    Also, for soft hair , I HIGHLY recommend natural mongoose brushes if you can fid them. Thei’re not only cheaper than Kolinsky sables but actually, I think, vastly superior in every way.
    Trust me, save the sables for water-media.
